    Ah Paula, The freedom of freelancing !!! I embarked on this career five years ago after selling my ad agency with a staff of 50 plus. It was liberating and terrifying all at the same time but the benefits far outweigh the downside. I now live in Bali where time moves at a more agreeable pace and tap out pieces and books that I hope people read. However beware!!!! A terminal disease can creep up and getcha ! Sloth and procrastination, which at times embraces me in its clutches like a hungry python. ( actually it can be rather pleasant sometimes, having the life squeezed out of one when a deadline looms) Oh ,and one more thing, don't delegate to the cat, they will seldom listen and give not a toss about deadlines. Good Luck !

    Freelancers and start-up entrepreneurs are cut from the same cloth. This year, I started offering an annual contract. I gave a break on fees in return for an annual commitment. I don't even charge extra for the occasional "emergency piece." Contract clients have priority on my time and pay less. Both they and I can budget more effectively. It's a win-win. "On-call clients" were disappointed when I had to refuse jobs both for the Facebook ChatBot and MS/LI announcements. I would rather refuse a job than miss a deadline.

    I haven't missed a deadline yet and have no intention of starting now.

    re: "Setting boundaries is a must. This means that family and friends need to “get” that you’re not 100% available," that applies to clients too. One drawback to the freelance lifestyle is that I'm always at work. Clients know they can usually reach me anytime between 07:00 and 23:00 GMT-5, weekends and holidays included. Surprisingly, no one abuses the privilege.

    Good Producer @Paula Gardner! Freelancing has many good things but as you said, there are also downsides like the uncertainty about income and the need of adaption to the digital and continuous evolution as well as the organization of your time. Welcome to beBee and hope to read more of your content!

    #1 Thanks Ken, there's a similar market in Melville, Johannesburg called 27 boxes which is really cool. However I feel that building with shipping containers will catch on in coastal regions here in SA more than Johannesburg - it's a good 5-6 hour drive (in a fast car) from Joburg to Durban... And about 24- 36 hours to Cape Town.....

    Interesting and well researched post, @Claire L Cardwell. As you say, an under-utilised product/material just begging for appropriate recycling! We have a weekend food and trinkets market, here in Brisbane, built with recycled shipping containers, but they are much more basic than some of the surprisingly aesthetically appealing dwellings shown in your photos. 👍 I'm sharing this one in Interesting Engineering, Technology and Discoveries.

    #20 Thanks Michael O'Neil. Yes it is a carbon sink and the materials are entirely carbon neutral. Just a bit of steel in the foundations.
    The straw is rendered in a mixture of lime plaster and buffalo dung.

    #2 Hi Ken, it seems that straw bale building is taking off in SA at long last. In fact the largest straw bale building in the world is the Didmala Lodge in Limpopo - see links below. http://inhabitat.com/five-star-didimala-lodge-is-the-world%E2%80%99s-largest-strawbale-building/worlds-largest-strawbale-bldg-1/

    This is most interesting, Claire Caldwell. I didn't know there were so many benefits to building with straw. I thought the flammability would be an issue but perhaps if it is densely baled, then it's possibility is reduced.

    #5 Thanks for tagging me @Ken Boddie. Natural materials and building techniques are one of my favourite subjects regarding civil engineering. There are many research papers on straw bale published by large standards organizations like ASTM, as well as many academic journal papers. In US and Canada, as far as I know, the Straw Bale Construction Building Codes have been adopted in 2013. Thanks for interesting article @Claire Cardwell.

    #7 Thanks, Ken @Ken Boddie. My memories are 20-yrs old, of course, the situation might have changed since. But alas, at the time, this would only happen in rural areas, while urban communities were awash in concrete, owing to the fact that the local elites had shares in cement factories and... well, you get the logic. The concrete of course is susceptible to mildew, tends to crumble after a while and does not "breathe" well, not to mention how ugly it looks when big black living blotches overtake it randomly... So that glorious building tradition was on the brink of extinction. I hope and prey it will enjoy a revival.

    Great observation, @Maja Vujovic. Certainly Sri Lanka has a history of impressive structures and technology. I remember touring there in the 1970s and being particularly impressed by the ruins of Anuradhapura. #6

    I've seen many traditionally built houses when I lived in Sri Lanka, and seen people first-hand erect them very quickly. The prevalent material there is straw mixed with dung, which of course dries up in the sun and gives off no odours. It's also very easy to patch up any cracks over time. You wouldn't believe the solid shade and coolness this provides inside, without any mildew anywhere. And Sri Lanka is very humid, plus battered with monsoon twice yearly, for months on end.

    I seem to remember that @Lada 🏡 Prkic recently posted on the use of straw bales. Are you aware of any credible research on this topic, Lada, in relation to my comments in #2 below?

    06/06/2016 #4 Dean Owen
    Fascinating. I wonder how they would hold up in a humid climate though. I am guessing quite well since as you mention, thatched roofs have long been used in England - Hence Margaret Thatcher came from a family tree of thatchers.

    06/06/2016 #3 James Smith
    I could've thought that this kind of material would be very flamable but now I see the solution for this, it's interesting how much materials are coming up for sustainable projects. I think that these kind of techniques should be taken to 3rd world countries in a massive way so people can start having a roof over their heads. Great share @Claire L Cardwell
    Ken Boddie
    06/06/2016 #2 Ken Boddie
    Interesting concept, Claire. As with all innovative materials, I suspect it may be hard to establish as an alternative concept for large scale housing, outside the one-off novelty, without credible research regarding its longterm durability, strength, fire resistance, resistance to insects, etc. Has much research been done in South Africa on these aspects and is there any sign of it being adopted with any confidence as a viable alternative to more conventional materials?

    I had heard of straw being used for sound proofing but this is a fantastic use of a material that as the article indicates is largely 'waste material'. Great ideas here!
